S. Taneyev - Oresteia. A music trilogy

S. Taneyev -  Oresteia. A music trilogy

Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Sergei Taneyev’s opera Oresteia, a revived masterpiece of Russian music.

The author worked on the opera for twelve years (1882-1894), in a period when Prince Igor, the Queen of Spades, Iolanta and Mlada were created. However, Oresteia remained a unique phenomenon in history of Russian opera. Sergei Taneyev was the best and favourite pupil of Tchaikovsky and Nikolai Rubinstein, a prominent educator and music theorist who brought up Rachmaninoff, Scriabin and many other famous pupils. Unexpectedly for his friends and peers, he was inspired with the ancient story (Aeschylus’s tetralogy) which met his aesthetic ideals of harmony and perfection.

Taneyev masterfully used a broad arsenal of music and dramatic techniques of the late 19th century - an intricate system of leitmotifs, evolving dramaturgy of operatic scenes, and a combination of freely recitative and arioso fragments. The special part of the chorus reflects the spirit of ancient theatre with bright orchestral bits frequently becoming culminations (the famous entr’acte The Temple of Apollo at Delphi). The opera is full of tragic anticipation of Fate, which makes it close to Tchaikovsky’s symphonism, but a heartwarming finale resolving the conflict is typical for Taneyev’s views thus deviating from Aeschylus’s fatalism. Wisdom and Love conquer the dark forces of revenge, insidiousness and malice - that is the bottom line of this monumental operatic interpretation.

Oresteia did not have a lucky stage life - it has been staged on a small number of occasions. The version of the State Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theatre of Belarus realized and recorded in the 1960’s is one of the best productions of the opera. That recording is featured in this set. The main parts are performed by the soloists of the Belorussian theatre V. Chernobayev, L. Galushkina, A. Bokov, T. Shimko, I. Dubrovkin and N. Tkachenko. The choir and orchestra are conducted by the People’s Artist of the Belorussian SSR Tatiana Kolomiytseva.

After the triumphant success of The King’s Singers last DVD ‘Live at the BBC Proms’ in 2008, this new video performance recorded at LSO St Luke’s in London sets an eclectic assortment of modern Christmas classics with special arrangements of some much loved favourites. Ranging from the beautiful simplicity of Michael Pretorius’s Es ist ein Ros’ entsprungen to the mad capers of Gordon Langford’s arrangement of Deck the hall, this is a delightful programme which reflects a typical live King’s Singers Christmas show.

One of two releases in time for the Christmas period from the UKs best-loved a cappella group The King’s Singers: feasts for the eyes and ears on both CD and DVD.
Their new Christmas DVD was recorded in the stylishly distinctive setting of Jerwood Hall in LSO St Luke’s, London.
The King’s Singers are world-renowned for their live performances, and this concert captures the charm and skill that you’d expect from a group of this calibre. It is a musical treat as well as a visual one, recorded in both CD quality stereo and in 5.1 surround sound.
The DVD also features a 10-minute bonus documentary feature, titled “Life as a King’s Singer”.

After a long "drought," the last few years have been a boon for fans and lovers of the Don Cossack Choir. A number of releases of rarely heard recordings have appeared on CD, and now comes an even greater "collectors' prize" -- a full-length DVD featuring rare videos of the choir from 1963 through 1969, performing 33 of its most popular selections. Listening to the Don Cossack Choir is one thing. Seeing Serge Jaroff's inimitable conducting gestures face-on and the expressions on the singers' faces, often in close-up, adds an altogether different dimension to the experience. Discover why this choir was arguably the most widely heard and wildly famous Russian musical act in history, beginning their existence as penniless refugees in a Turkish internment camp and going on to sing more than 10,000 concerts throughout the world over a 60-year period.--V.M.
